PROVO, Utah – You know you’ve made it as a head coach at BYU when you get an ice cream flavor from the BYU Creamery named in your honor.
The BYU Creamery unveiled two new ice cream flavors on this week’s Coaches Show (Tuesday, 9 p.m. on KSL NewsRadio) for BYU head football coach Kalani Sitake and men’s basketball headman Mark Pope.
Kalani Sitake Road and Pope’s Postgame Snack will go on sale at the BYU Creamery on Ninth beginning January 2022.
BYU Creamery Ice Cream Flavors for Coaches Over The Years
Sitake and Pope join an exclusive club of BYU coaches to land a BYU Creamery ice cream flavor. Others include legendary football coach LaVell Edwards. Edwards’ flavor is “LaVell’s vanilla.”
Former BYU basketball coach Dave Rose earned “Rose’s Sneakerdoodle,” a sweet cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookie pieces.
Women’s Soccer coach Jennifer Rockwood has a flavor named in her honor. “Cherry Rockwood” features chocolate ice cream, maraschino cherries, and chocolate-covered cherry cups.
Former football head coach Bronco Mendenhall once had a flavor called “Bronco’s Cocoa Bean.” But unlike the flavors mentioned above, that one isn’t available anymore after he left to take the Virginia job.
